What a lot of you are missing is there is so much more going on than the "biker party" thing on Main and Beach Street. I go every year to racevintage MX(this year also flat track) and watch the vintage roadrace( a couple of my buddies race) There is also Vintage Cross Country and Trials racing.I always enjoy the chance to meet and talk with racing legends such as **** Klamforth,**** Mann,Brad Lackey,etc. There is every type of modern bike racing to see and participate in from trials to the Alligator enduro.There is basically at least a race of some kind every day from Sat to Sat in the area. Also if you are into vintage street bikes there are several good shows,including the Eustace AMCA swap meet.I know many of you are not into chopper /customs but if you are there is no better place to be. if course those of you who leave in good weather states dont appreciate the riding....but for those of us less fortunate the chance to get a jump on Spring and steal a couple of 75-80deg days riding(even on straight roads) is worth it..and the ride from Daytona to St augustine is pretty nice. Each to his own....I dont do "rallies",but I do hit Daytona area every year and enjoy it(just avoid the circus in Daytona proper).

just buy a general admission ticket. there are so many great views at laguna seca you'll want to walk around to take advantage of all of them.



If you're planning to camp, stay at the track. There is a special area for tent camping and it's first come, first served. There are portable showers at the track. The reserved camping is already sold out.



Bring sunscreen and a hat and warm stuff too. It might be really hot or socked in with fog or windy. The weather is very unpredicatable there.



And since it looks like you ride a Ducati. They will have a special area for Ducati riders including helmet and jacket storage, free water and a special Ducati only grandstand. Just show your key and your in.

I thought it was a very well written letter. Now she just needs to set up a few 50 cal. machine guns on few roofs tops. Kinda hard to close the barn door in the middle of a stampede.
